Never-Ending Card

Today's Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers is Shelly (Freshn'Sassy). In looking through Shelly's gallery, I saw several Never-ending cards, a technique I had not done before. There are several tutorials on-line for this technique -- one of them has a video. What better way to try a new technique than by CASEing someone else. So even though today is Easter, I decided to do a Christmas card.

The card base is made with Mark's Finest Papers' Red Hots (a 100-pound cardstock) and the designer papers are from Stampin'Up's Deck the Halls DSP, matted on MFP Deep Olive. Very little stamping on the front -- just the JOY from MFP's Seasonal Poinsettias.

When you open the first fold, this is what you find. The images are from MFP Greetings of the Season.

For the second fold, I stamped the cardinal and split him in half so he would fit on the two vertical panels.

The back of the card is just designed paper. Even though I had fun making this card, I'm not sure I'll ever try it again. But I had to be able to say that I did it at least once!

Paper - MFP Red Hots 100-lb paper, Deep Olive, Naturals Ivory; SU Deck the Halls DSP

I made a few of these. They are so much fun. I once did one with Happy birthday on the first page and last, Happy mothers day on the inside for my mom whose birthday falls a day or 2 before mothers day each year.
